Classic

by Jose on 4/6/2012

I purchased the 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray for the movie alone but this collection set did not disappoint me at all. The set includes a great book with pictures and cast bios, and also includes Mr. Heston's personal journal from when he worked on this great film! If you had to choose a movie in terms of audio and video quality this would be one of the ones to get period. Read More
